Series: Haven Brotherhood #3
Title: Claim and Protect
Author: Rhenna Morgan

This works brilliantly as a standalone – I loved it and hadn’t read any of the earlier books in this series, though I hope to rectify that in the near future!
The Haven Brotherhood are a group of men, brought together during their troubled childhood and brothers not in blood but in support of each other, working together to protect those who need it so no one else needs to go through what they did. They’re an honourable group who know they’ll always have each others’ backs though what they do isn’t always strictly legal but is usually very effective!
In this story the brother is Trevor Raines. His mother was killed by her abusive husband, Trevor’s father. When he spots one of the waitresses in the bar he owns breaking the rule about using her mobile phone he is determined to discover why she is risking losing her job. When he discovers the reason, it changes things for both of them and is the start of an enthralling story where the Brotherhood again work to protect those struggling to protect themselves. It is a story of overcoming the past to move on with love and hope to look forward to the future and a great romance, too. I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into this well written story, with well portrayed characters and plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages. I will definitely look out for more in this series and other books by this talented author and have no hesitation in highly recommending this one.
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society’s expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other’s backs.
Trevor Raines lives on the edge of legal. A good guy doing bad things to save lives, the only rules he follows are the Brotherhood’s, and there’s nothing in the world that will change that. Until Natalie Jordan walks into his life…
Natalie’s only interest is in making a fresh start. She’s a woman with a plan, and the plan doesn’t include a man with secrets, no matter how kind—or intoxicating—he is. But this cowboy is determined to break down her walls, keep her safe and make her his.
Trevor had no interest in settling down, but there’s something entirely too appealing about the woman he can’t stay away from. There’s only one thing to do—change his plans…and hers. When Natalie’s ex resurfaces to threaten her new life, Trevor will move heaven and earth to make sure the bastard can’t hurt her again. Except saving Natalie means outing his own secrets—and it could mean losing her forever…
